Graduating from Level 6 at Charlotte Aquatics takes hard work and perseverance! These students and their parents have been committed to learning to swim year round! These super swimmers can swim 200′ of freestyle with rotary breathing, 200′ of backstroke with open turns, 150′ of butterfly and breaststroke, tread water for 5 minutes, and perform a surface dive to retrieve a 5 pound brick! These students should be very proud of themselves for all that they have accomplished; I know we are!
My name is Kunal and I am 6 years old. I am a first grader. When I am not swimming, I enjoy playing on my iPad and playing basketball. My best memory is swimming in the pool with my dad when I first joined Charlotte Aquatics. I am no longer afraid of deep water. My favorite stroke is front crawl (although Ms. Gigi says I have a perfect “ Mr. Mike’s style butterfly stroke” !)
I have saved all my patches and my mum is going to frame them for me! I would like to thank Mr. Mike and Ms. Gigi for all their help in getting me this trophy!
Parent’s Note: Such a bittersweet moment for the Nadkarni family! We are very proud of Kunal but so sad to bid farewell to Charlotte Aquatics. A 10 year old journey together will come to an end and we will truly miss everyone there! We wish our paths will cross again someday. A special thanks to Kelly, Stephanie, Cara, Ms. Gigi, and Mr. Mike!
My name is Noel and I am a second grader. I love swimming and thank you for teaching me to be such a good swimmer. This summer our whole family went to Myrtle beach for vacation; I could swim in the sea and float on the waves, it was amazing. Swimming changed my life by making me stronger, healthier and more confident. My favorite stoke is front stroke because it helps me swim faster like a fish. My favorite teacher is Ms. Kathryn, her professional swimming knowledge and amazing voice impress me. My most excited day at Charlotte Aquatics was Nov. 17, 2017 when I earned my first trophy in my life. Again thank you to all the teachers that have taught me in the past and I hope other swimmers will swim like a fish and graduate very soon.
